Anyone unfamiliar with this show should pause reading this NOW, copy the Archive address here to add to your collection, and listen as soon as possible! This is an awesome, justly famous show that will get you hoppin' and boppin'! Apart from Pig being in top form, the psychedelic interplay between the rest of the band members during Good Lovin' is very far out. This is R&B with mind-boggling twists and turns, folks. And does Pigpen let his Lovelight shine brightly! The rap here is well-known as the most elaborate and coolest of any performance ever, of this song.
I'll never understand why this has never been released commercially. Makes no sense. An essential, legendary show.

Wonderful recording of a 4-and-a-half star show. Pigpen is ON!

to the review below this one you can always go to sugarmegs.com There its one big file where you can listen to entire show without the cuts.
I agree because I never went to a show where they would pause in between. The songs are meant to flow from one to the other. That being said though how lucky are we all to be able to go back and listen to almost everyshow in the bands history. I wish this site here had all of the Jerry shows on here. Always loved garcia band shows would love to be riding down the road with anyone of them I want on any giving day.
As far as this shows full on boogie. They were for sure on the money in early days. No complaining about how they played on any givin night from me. I would always say back in the early years of my touring the Dead could play 3 nights at the town dump and sell out . Of course thats in the later years of my touring. I happen to love the shows where we all got in like boise 83 even the garden in 83 tickets were easy to get.

This show is from 1971. Not 1982, or 1985 when there was "Drums" (and then "Space") in the second set to indulge Mickey and give the rest of the band a rest. STOP CORRUPTING EVERY "GOOD LOVIN'" BY MAKING IT THREE TRACKS INSTEAD OF ONE!!
Stop ruining the old 'Other One' suites by making them four tracks (Cryptical, Drums, Other One, Cryptical).
And certainly no need to segregate several minutes of ANY show into a track called "Jam"! We know they jam. That's why we're here.
